*** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of bug 449356 ***
My mistake to mark as duplicate, is different issue, but still maybe related to Bug 449356
Has Adam seen this issue with 4.7 or 4.8?
If it is not of interest to RH, RH person should close it.
BTW, Weybridge is the correct spelling.
Santa Rosa was never supported on RHEL4.
Weybridge was never supported on RHEL4 either.
Thanks, I should have remembered that.
Closing this BZ as won't fix.
